'3 Years of 7 Seas Beers' Anniversary Bash, Expansion Update, & Summertime
Here at 7 Seas Brewing, we have recently moved brewing operations into our new home in a portion of the old QFC/Uddenburg's building in downtown Gig Harbor. The building is ideally situated just a block off the scenic waterfront and in close proximity to local shops, restaurants, other small businesses and a soon to be constructed public dock for boaters and fisherman. The brewery, featuring a new, three vessel 25 BBL brew-house (775 Gal.) occupies a majority of the space and is now operational with the first batches just finishing up. We have also moved and installed our previous two vessel 8.5 BBL brew-house (264 Gal.) into the new location and will begin experimenting and formulating some new seasonal offerings.
Our first objective was to efficiently move the brewing operations, and begin brewing beer in our new home. Our entire team worked extremely hard to make this transition happen smoothly and we’re happy to be brewing beer on a new, beautiful, well-engineered (and shiny!) system.
We have now focused our efforts towards building the new Tap Room and can’t wait to have our amazing customers here to enjoy it all. We anticipate opening to the public before the end of 2012 and in the meantime, we’re continuing to operate the old Tap Room at 3207 57th St. Court NW, next to the Inn at Gig Harbor. Make sure to enjoy our last Summer there, especially outside in the spacious NW-style Beer Garden.
Another new artisan craft is coming to Gig Harbor soon. Heritage Distilling Company will be opening in our previous location. We can’t wait to see what spirits they turn out! With vodka, gin, and whiskey to start, it looks like they have a wide array of offerings to satisfy all. Congrats to HDC and welcome to the hood!
We are excited about relocating and expanding 7 Seas Brewing Co. However, we are also sad to say goodbye to our previous location where we have brewed, established ourselves, made friends, celebrated, conversed and enjoyed the quaintness of it all. Although moving inherently creates change, we assure you that the identity, vision, aesthetic, and principles of 7 Seas are strongly resolute. Indeed, change can create apprehension and skepticism, but know that this transition is conducted with scrupulousness, loyalty to our values, and intended to benefit us all. New jobs will be created, Historic Gig Harbor will breathe new life, less waiting in line for a pint or growler fill, and more Ultimate Proper Pints of 7 Seas beer for everyone, including kegs to go finally. We will continue our passion to brew great beer, establish an enduring yet innovative brand, and create a friendly and inclusive Tap Room for our customers to enjoy.
Since our inception, we have been fortunate to attract an extremely loyal group of customers, including those who frequent the Tap Room and our wholesale clients throughout the South Sound region. We appreciate and value all of you! So, in 7 Seas style, it's time to throw down and thank all of you with '3 Years of 7 Seas Beers' Anniversary Bash! Our chance to show thanks and celebrate another glorious year of 7 Seas beers!
Join us on Saturday, July 21st from 12noon-8pm @ 7 Seas Tap Room (the one behind the hotel). We'll have local music brought to you by Perry Acker, Sweetkiss Momma, Ben Union, and more! There is a $3 cover charge that goes directly to the music artists. Buck-B-Q will be in the house again, serving an array of delicacies! The event is 21+, sorry no kiddos. Also cash only, but we will have an ATM on-site. Parking is located in two areas: in the lot right off 56th St, previously a satellite Peninsula Subaru lot, and next to the old theater, behind Tanglewood Grill, in the lot of the new building there. Parking will be clearly marked and parking assistants to. well....assist. Please understand and be respectful to all of our great neighbors who let us do this. Please park only in designated areas and most of all, BE SAFE!
As we move into Summer time, there are plenty of upcoming events worth attending. We hope to see some familiar faces there. Also, we are nearly set to release one of our more popular, anticipated Seasonal Offerings; Rude Parrot IPA. Thank you to everyone who has supported us, enjoyed our beers, offered a helpful hand in this time of transition or volunteered at an event. Just like having a pint is best enjoyed amongst friends, brewing beer is also a team game. We are grateful to SO many individuals who have helped make this all happen.
Cheers to you all,
-7 Seas Crew
Custom Growlers, Spring Seasonal Brews, & Expansion
What a busy start to the New Year! A winter wonderland was dropped on our door steps providing snow days for all. After Snowmaggedeon passed it was catch-up time. Here at 7 seas we have been very busy!
It's that 7 Seas Custom Growler time of year again! The 2012 edition will be released in mere weeks, and we can't wait to show you! There will be 500 crafted and they are all numbered. The growlers were custom made in Germany, then customized by Gig Harbor's own Fresh NW Design. The end result is one bad-ass peice of functional art! Hope to see you there.

We participated in the 8th Annual Strange Brewfest in Port Townsend, taking home 2nd place! As usual, the brews were quite strange and pushed creative boundaries. We crafted past favorites, 7 Bloody Seas and Blue Ballz, and debuted Belgo Granny, our take on Belgian Apple Pie. If you haven't attended this fest before, it is an absolute blast and a perfect weekend getaway. Try to make it in the future, it is a great time!
The Seattle Space Needle turns 50 this year! To commemorate such an occasion the Space Needle held a beer competition, with the winners' brew being served up top for the whole year! The beer had to be made specifically for the event and 10 local breweries participated. We crafted Reign Man ESB, a tasty ode to the Seattle Super Sonics. Although not the winner, Reign Man ESB did quite well and was enjoyed by all. Congrats to Seattle's Pike Brewery for the win!
Alright, let's talk 7 Seas expansion. Our new home in downtown Gig Harbor is almost ready to move in! We are very excited! Things are going along very well. We will begin the process of installing our new brewhouse and tanks in mere weeks. It will take time, but we hope to have our first brew happen there in mid-April. The Tap Room will remain where it is until sometime between the end-of-summer and the end-of the year. We will then move down and 7 Seas will be OPEN for business in its new home. Can't wait to show everyone!

It is crazy how fast a year can sail by! Here we are again at the end of another amazing year, a great time to look back and be thankful for friends, family, and 7 Seas Beer! We here at 7 Seas are very thankful to all of you! Your support over the past few years has been relentless and humbling. We do our absolute best to make all of you proud!

le Havre (the Harbor) Belgian Winter Ale
First light of dawn; a poised Rubber-Booted Artisan, a calm and peaceful brewery cloaked by the fresh, doughy aroma of malted barley, his own cloister-and Ale shall be created. This seasonal offering is fashioned with reverence towards the long-standing tradition of Trappist Abbey-style beers of Belgium. Brewed with Pale Ale malt, oats, and dark crystal malts, hopped with Fuggles, and fermented with authentic Belgian Abbey yeast, the ale reveals intricate layers of spice, fig, bitter chocolate and delicate alcohol. An inviting, yet complex brew that implores us to relax, silence ourselves, and take a moment to appreciate what’s genuine, simple, and beautiful in life. Be at ease, be at peace, and enjoy…cheers.
OG: 18.25 plato TG: 2.7-3.0 plato
ABV: 8.0% IBU: 20
2011 Wheelchair Barleywine
Brewed in the tradition of British-style Barley Wines, our 2011 offering displays burgundy/brown hues, a thick off-white head of lacey foam, toasted malt, a strong presence of raisiny, vinous fruit aroma and warming alcohol. Crafted with British Marris Otter, dark crystal and aromatic malts, liberally hopped with Glacier and East Kent Goldings, we also added 60 LBS of locally sourced Washington State Clover honey to the boil kettle. With its’ coating, silky rich mouth-feel, and complex interplay of deep caramel malt, ripe fruit aroma and sturdy alcohol, 7 Seas 2011 Barley Wine is a colossal, yet refined brew.
OG: 26.9 plato TG: 6.4 plato
ABV: 10.6% IBU: approx. 38
From all of us here at 7 Seas Brewing, enjoy a safe, relaxing holday season! See you in the New Year!
Cheers & Happy Holidays,
7 Seas Crew
A New Season and it's Seasonal Brews
Welcome to Autumn here in the Pacific Northwest! At 7 Seas Brewing Co. we have enjoyed a splendid Summer with lots of Proper Pints, a raucous 2nd year anniversary party, numerous beer festivals, boisterous times in the NW Beer Garden, and continued to work relentlessly hard at improving all that encompasses 7 Seas. We extend our gratitude towards all of our customers here at the Tap Room, and to our wholesale clients throughout the Puget Sound region. We are steadily making progress on expanding our production capacity and remain confident that more 7 Seas Ale will arrive on taps and shelves in the near future. Quickly approaching are several events worth mentioning and your consideration to attend.
Hop Prophet: 100% Wet Hop Ale:
Come late August and early September, the abundant hop cones swarming the Yakima valley reach their fruition. Wet, saturated, and dripping with essential oils and resins, they are ready for harvest. Once a year, we are presented an opportunity to brew 7 Seas Hop Prophet, a 'wet' hop ale utilizing Amarillo and Centennial varieties that go from 'vine' to 'kettle' within hours. Exclusively brewed with wet hops at a rate of over 7 LBS per BBL (31gal) of beer, the Hop Prophet yields an aroma of fresh citrus zest followed by a delicate, yet pronounced juicy bitterness. A blend of domestic Pale Ale malt, British Marris Otter malt, and a touch of light crystal malt, contribute a clean, off-dry mouthfeel with subtle notes of honey and melon fruit. With benevolence, good-will, and transcendence, the Hop Prophet bestows his almighty powers towards a successful harvest and his grace towards the hard working individuals toiling amongst the sun and soil of our treasured hop growing regions of Washington State.
OG: 14.0 Plato TG: 2.6 Plato
ABV: 5.8% IBU: 100% Wet/Fresh Hops (no pellets required)
*2011 Hops: Centennial & Amarillo
7 Seas Harvest Ale:
Harvest Ale takes its inspiration from the venerable traditions of German Oktoberfest and Vienna Marzen style of beers. Employing a blend of German Munich and Vienna malts as a base, Harvest Ale displays brilliantly clear reddish, orange hues evocative of the vibrant, rich, and deep colors that seemingly surface overnight on local Vine Maple and Aspen trees this time of year in the Northwest. Fermented at low temperatures, ester production is greatly inhibited allowing for a rounded, yet crisp malt character to fully emerge. German Hersbrucker and Czech Saaz hops contribute a moderately spicy, earthy flavor accent to this otherwise unctuously smooth brew. Prost!
OG: 15.5 Plato TG: 2.75 Plato
ABV: 6.5% IBU: Approx. 27
To everyone that has, does, and continues to support 7 Seas Brewing Company we are grateful. We strive to create the best beer we can brew. We take our passion seriously, yet have fun and continuously try to improve, evolve, and learn our beloved craft. We are inspired by that often times, the elusive quest for the Ultimate Proper Pint, one that is flawless, beautiful, and somehow perfect. Cheers to you all and just remember that; "They who drink beer will think beer." -Washington Irving

7 Seas Summer Updates
Welcome to Summer in the great Northwest! Warm, dry weather, and long days equal prime beer drinking season.
Whether you're out hiking the Olympics, boating the Sound, biking the trails, or hitting the links, don't forget to pack a few cans of 7 Seas tall boys to quench your thirst.
We have brewed the last couple batches of our Spring Seasonal, Cascadian Dark Ale, and have begun production on our Summer Seasonal, the elusive and coveted Rude Parrot India Pale Ale. Loud, sassy, and relentless, the Rude Parrot has an insatiable appetite for hops! Brewed with Vienna, light Crystal, and a touch of Honey malt, this golden hued IPA is aggressively hopped with Simcoe and Citra hops. A big juicy, tropical fruit hop nose yields way to an off dry, pleasantly bitter finish. The perfect pint for hot, sunny days, the Parrot pairs beautifully with fish and poultry off the grill and lighter summer time fare, such as grilled veggies and salads.
Rude Parrot IPA Brewing Specs:
OG=13.8 dgrees Plato
TG=2.2-2.7 degrees Plato

New website, Cascadian Dark Ale and more!
Greetings everybody! Welcome to Spring time in the Northwest. The days are longer, the air is warmer, the birds are chirping away, Daffodils are in bloom, The Mariners are off to their typical dismal start, and the 7 Seas NW Beer Garden is getting into full swing. Although it's not quite shorts and sandals weather yet, Summer time will be here before we know it and that means it's time to quench the additional thirst for Proper Pints! Then again, when is it not a good time for a Proper Pint of 7 Seas Ale?
Our website has just received a makeover so feel free to browse around. New and improved with photo galleries, a short video about 7 Seas, and more frequent updates on news and events at 7 Seas!
We have recently released a new Spring Seasonal beer, '7 Seas Cascadian Dark Ale,' also sometimes known as a Black India Pale Ale, or American style Black Ale. Hence, we welcome you to experience the dark side of India Pale Ales. Conceived here in the NW, we're proud to offer this intensely hoppy, black, yet velvety smooth Spring seasonal. Brewed with de-husked black malt, caramel malt, and generously hopped with Columbus, Centennial and Amarillo. Our CDA achieves layers of hop character nicely balanced by a hint of roast and a smooth lingering finish. At 7% ABV, this ale offers both power and finesse, audacity and subtlety, yielding without question, an Ultimate Proper Pint. Enjoy!
Custom Growlers, Barleywine and more...
Welcome 2011! It's good to have you here, but give me back my daylight and decent temperatures again! Moving from Winter into Spring is a welcomed transition in seasons and brings with it new life and new beers. Here at 7 Seas we will be enjoying our last pints of the Santa's Smokin' Winter Warmer and move into the unknown. Our first spring seasonal is arriving in port soon, look forward to it in mid-March. Holding back details at this time….mmmm the anticipation.
We are proud to announce that the 7 Seas 2011 Custom Growler Release is approaching!

Season's Greetings from 7 Seas Brewing
Hello all! We here at 7 Seas hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Hopefully some proper pints got you through that cold streak.
Our current seasonal offering, 'Saison du Sept Mers' has had a short stay here in port before it sets sail in the next few weeks. Arriving to port is a new brew, 'Santa's Smokin' Winter Warmer'. It will keep our spirits high and bellies warm this time of year.
Santa's Smokin' Release Party
'Santa's Smokin' will debut Tuesday, December 14th at Crown Bar in Tacoma @ 6pm. They will be hosting a 7 Seas Brewer's Night/ Release Party including holiday prize giveaways accompanied by the new beer in addition to more 7 Seas brews.
Santa's Smokin' Winter Warmer
Our take on a Smoked Porter, 7 Seas-style. For this special holiday brew we combine malts from Germany, Britain, Canada and the US to create a globally inspired beer based on the principles of love and good humanity towards our neighbors. Santa's Smokin' ale displays a rich depth of malt accented by a subtle smoky note. Hopped with Centennial, Glacier, and Willamettes, a delicate bitterness brings the bold malt and warming alcohol into balance. Pair Santa's Smokin' ale with a variety of rich holiday foods, cheers!
MORE BEER, expansion and upcoming move
Press Release: For Immediate Release
7 Seas Brewing announces expansion to historic downtown Gig Harbor
Job-creating move will greatly expand capacity of popular local craft brewery
Gig Harbor — 7 Seas Brewing Co. has announced a move and expansion into a larger building in historic downtown Gig Harbor. The popular local craft brewery has outgrown their current space and says construction is already underway in the new facility, located in downtown’s Peninsula Shopping Center, just a block from the waterfront. Initially, the company says, the expansion will create four new jobs.
7 Seas Brewing Co. will be occupying 11,000 sq/ft of the previous QFC grocery store, and the new site will dedicate 8,600 sq/ft to their production facility, and 2,400 sq/ft towards a Tap Room. Partnering with AAA Metal Fabrication of Oregon, a new, shiny, stainless steel, custom-built steam-fired 25 bbl (775 gallon) 3-vessel brew-house arrives in mid-January. 7 Seas secured SBA financing through local Heritage Bank to fund the expansion, which was made necessary after successive expansions left them no room to expand in their existing space.
7 Seas Brewing Co. opened in 2009 after rebounding from a devastating fire that tore through their initial facility in downtown Gig Harbor. The fire, stemming from a neighboring business’s space heater, destroyed 80% of their assets and equipment. They relocated to their current building and began operating on an 8.5 bbl (265 gal.) brew-house.
“We’re really excited. The new facility will house both the 8.5 bbl and the new 25 bbl brew-houses. This will allow 7 Seas Brewing Co. to produce year-round offerings on the larger brew-house as well as experiment and create new seasonal beers on the smaller brew-house,” said Mike Runion, one of the brewery’s owners.
The initial brewery footprint at full capacity could eventually produce up to 20,000 bbls/year. However, 7 Seas Brewing Co. estimates a first calendar year production of around 4,000 bbls, with annual growth as new tanks are installed in the future.
The new facility is expected to be brewing its first batches of 7 Seas beer in March of 2012. The new Tap Room is expected to open sometime between June-October of 2012 and maintain a cozy, living room feel while providing a little more space to enjoy a pint and watch the brewery in action. The current 7 Seas Tap Room will remain open during the transition.
